What made you want to start your own parenting blog?

I went to school for Behavior Analysis and Cognitive Neuroscience. When I became a SAHM, I realized how much my experience was helping me with everyday situations in parenting. I decided to share my expertise with others to help them become better parents as well!

What 3 words would you use to describe your blog?

I would say my blog is helpful, informative and fun.

What is your favorite blog post to date?

My favorite blog post is my first Momster Challenge. It’s a challenge to help parents become less emotional and more gentle when parenting. It has daily steps, tips, and reminders to lead us toward our goal. I have new Momster Challenges for every month, but I think this one is my favorite because it helps me the most. I hate to lose my temper, and this challenge really helps me to become a better mom.

What’s your go-to tip for balancing blogging with parenthood?

You’re a parent first! Blogging isn’t worth it if it makes us miss the precious moments with our kids. Carve out time for blogging, but what’s more important is carving out time to put the blog away and be there for our kids.

What is the best piece of parenting advice you’ve ever received?

Enjoy it while it lasts. I love every minute I spend with my kids, and time flies.

What’s a typical day like for you?

I’m a SAHM and I homeschool my oldest (the others are too young), so every days is an adventure. I spend lots of time playing with and taking care of the kids. We do school in the morning and try to get housework done, but other than that, I just take it as it comes. We do playdates and fun day trips for the kids. I blog when the kids take naps, are playing with friends, or after they go to bed at night. We try to fill our day with love and family.

What’s the best insight you can offer other parenting bloggers?

Find a friend blogger! My sister blogs at ToJesusSincerely.com, and blogging together has been SO helpful. We learn different tricks and tips and we each teach each other what we know. We proofread for each other and exchange opinions and advice. Having a trusted second opinion and another set of eyes makes everything so much easier. It also gives us both motivation to keep going.
